  Art & Architecture        
This exhibit explores the relationship artists have with architecture as subject. Art and architecture both have meaning. They are simultaneously expressive and communicative.

  Art: Theater for the Mind        
Art as is life is a journey of discovery. It’s a lesson in expression that talks to the viewer on an individual level, painting memories of life, drama, and inspiration set in a space that is theater for the mind.

  A Dialog with Nature      
A Dialog with Nature catalog cover
“The artist should not only paint what he sees before him,” claimed Caspar David Friedrich, “but also what he sees in himself”. He should have “a dialogue with Nature”. Friedrich’s words encapsulate two central elements of the Romantic conception of landscape: close observation of the natural world and the importance of the imagination. This exhibit explores not only the relationship the artists have with the natural world but also how it’s interpreted and visualized.

  Edward Weston: Perpetual Existence

  Discovering Receptive Abstract Patternism  
  Rod Jones's paintings are cold on the outside but warm in its embrace, Receptive Abstract Patternism with its inseparable hat-tipping soul guarantees that never again will we see abstract art in an unreachable kind of way.    

  Visions of Elysium

  Painter - Eric Tippeconnic & Photographer - Derrick Yazzie    
  This exhibit is about capturing a moment to serve as a metaphor for the viewer which boldly states that Indigenous American cultures while intimately connected to their history are in fact contemporary, alive, and constantly evolving.    

  Joanna Mersereau: Artist in Review  
  With a strong pallet of vibrant colors, Joanna Mersereau gives us a glimpse of her world through her art. With an eye for design and form that comes from a background incorporating a love for architectural design as well as a passion to create beauty, she “paints what she sees” and wants to share her world with others    

  Fragments: an archeology of memory  
  A unique artistic perspective from a Vietnam veteran. This artwork has facilitated the uncovering of bits of blocked memories, pieces of the reality that was too harsh to hold onto, to in the 70’s, too difficult to relive fully today With a paintbrush as his tool, Johnson allows his subconscious access to his studio and we benefit by these dozens of abstract paintings and assemblage. The images are fragments that interplay with poems, short stories and plays written after 911. The written words, rather than explaining the images, point beyond or behind the artwork.
